Look what we found!

It was an amazing discovery! Several weeks ago as skoots1mom and I were walking back to our cars after our morning work out our pioneering spirit took over.

We had had a morning of rain and as we walked down to the clubhouse where the workout room is we both commented how soothing the sound of the creek was and how wonderful it would be to sit on the deck above us and listen to the babbling water and drink a cup of morning coffee.

The area behind the clubhouse is very densely wooded and you can not see any evidence of the creek, you can certainly hear it but with the trees and thick ground cover  it remains very well hidden.

We had finished out workout and were hiding back to our cars when through a very tiny crack in the foliage we could see something.

We set off to do a bit of exploring.

Within a very few minutes this is what we found!

With all the rain we have had over that last few days I took the opportunity this morning before my workout to go back down to the waterfall and capture a few minutes of this amazing-ness.

I have to tell ya, I have lived in this neighborhood for nearly four years. In all that time I had no idea that this amazing waterfall even existed.

Is God awesome or what!

Although all this rain has reeked havoc in many of the surrounding areas it has also brought forth this beautiful waterfall.

And I wanted to share it with all of you!

WOW! That would have def. stopped me in my tracks. How gorgeous!

Nothing more "purifying/cleansing" than the sound and sight of rushing water.

Thanks for sharing!

What a great little surprise.
We have had waterfalls in my area where they don't belong this week with all the rain.
Have a great day.
